ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Almost any time Ray Lewis has lined up over the last 17 years, he has been the best linebacker - if not the best player - on the field.
If Lewis is in uniform Sunday when the Ravens play the Broncos that might not be the case.
With his rare combination of around-the-corner speed and nimble footwork, Denver's Von Miller is changing the equation.
He was last year's defensive rookie of the year and is a favorite to be this year's defensive player of the year. He heads into the 14th game with 16 sacks, one short of Elvis Dumervil's single-season franchise record. Miller has at least one sack in the past six games, along with six forced fumbles and a total of 24 tackles in opposing team's backfields.
